Comedians React To Trump’s Bizarre Post-Election Press Conference
From talking about Lil Jon, to accosting Jim Acosta
Just when you thought Trump’s press conferences couldn’t get any more bizarre, you come to find out they actually..ugh..can. The man is an endless well that never stops producing Sulphuric water that smells like rotten eggs.
Following the most talked about midterm elections this country has ever witnessed, which lead to the Democratic takeover of the House Of Representatives and highest number of women being elected to the U.S. Congress, a freshly spray-tanned President Trump gave a press conference so cringeworthy, it made our eyeballs roll so far into the back of our heads, it left us all looking like Bran Stark from Game Of Thrones when he was having those weird visions.
Some of the most pathetic moments of this press conference were when he called an African American journalist “racist” for asking him whether he thought his rhetoric was emboldening white nationalists across the country, to him…get this…accosting Jim Acosta , to saying he didn’t know who Lil Jon was even though he had appeared on The Apprentice.
Writers and comedians quickly flooded Twitter with hilarious commentary on the press conference, so we rounded up some of the funniest reactions:

It’s almost like this press conference is being led by a person who couldn’t stand one whole day of national attention not being solely on him.

Trump just answered a question about how he’s going to stop the rise in acts of antisemitism in America by bragging that he has a Jewish friend.
